SQL Server Application Role Activation from within Delphi
Posted on 2004-08-26
I am currently developing an app that connects to a SQL Server 2000 database. I would very much like to make use of the SQL Server Application Role functionality, but I cannot seem to get it working. I have tried using a ADOStoredProc, ADOQuery, ADOCommand and even the ADOConnection directly to execute the stored procedure to activate using the Application Role.
What I could understand from all the documentation is that I must switch the current open connection from the user login password (in my case using Windows Authentication) by using a stored procedure called master.dbo.sp_SetAppRole with parameters @rolename and @password.
I have successfully tested this in SQL Query Analyzer, but cannot get this working from within Delphi.
